Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Preview, Latest H2H record and Betting Tips: UCL 2021 Group B, Matchday 3
The Reds of Merseyside and Los Colchoneros of Madrid are gearing themselves up for what will be one of the most enthralling group stage games in the UEFA Champions League all season. And Alley Sport brings you the Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Preview, Latest H2H record and Betting Tips from this Group B fixture on matchday 3 of the UCL.
Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Preview
Both Liverpool and Atletico Madrid are drawn in what is called the Group of Death. With Atletico, Liverpool, FC Porto (winners in 1987 and 2004), and AC Milan, who are seven-time champions of the competition, things are bound to get interesting in Group B. As of now, the Reds lead the proceedings with 6 points to their name already while the others still trail them.
Liverpool and Atletico Madrid met in one of the most famous recent UEFA Champions League encounters last year. The Reds thought they completed a second leg comeback (sort of, at least) but Adrian San Miguel’s errors single-handedly ruined Liverpool’s chances of progression that night in extra time and the Reds crashed out of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League season in embarrassing fashion.
As for Atletico Madrid, they are second in the group with 4 points and overtake Liverpool with a win at Wanda Metropolitano this week and are already on the back of a big win against Barcelona in La Liga. They would want to recreate those 2020 memories once again but luckily for Liverpool, Adrian will be nowhere near the lineup this time around. The defending La Liga champions will also look to reach their first final since the two they reach against Real Madrid in the last decade.
